Indymedia Presents: How did we get tricked?




This show features the Mohawk IMC's piece, "Independent Media in a Time of War." As Bush's poll ratings plummet and support for the war crumbles, it occurs to us that there are a lot of Americans out there who are wondering "how they could have fallen for the lies?" What went wrong to make them believe there were weapons of mass destruction or that Iraq was responsible for 9/11? Americans are wondering, how did I ever believe in this Administration? With that in mind, we are revisiting this classic piece featuring Amy Goodman, which examines the role of the media in bamboozling the American public. This piece came out early in the Iraq war, but, now we are 3 years into the war and it is time to revisit it.There are real answers to the question,"how did we get tricked?"

Subject: well stated.
the mainstream media is shown to be part of the sales pitch to go to war, like a division of the war department. clear examples are shown.
